Tip find- Behmor Brazen Plus (not working of course)
While dropping off some random cables and old electronics at my local recycling centre, I was very happily surprised to see a Behmor Brazen Plus recently discarded!
Iíve had my eye on one of these, so I couldnít resist salvaging it. Of course, it doesnít work. Plugged it in, doesnít seem to get any power at all.
Iíve disassembled it, thinking there might have been a blown fuse or similar, the only damage I can see is a slight crimp in the ribbon cable that connects the control panel to the logic board. Iíll try replacing this, but thought Iíd put it out to the hive mind
1) did this belong to anyone in the forum?
2) anyone have any experiences of Brazens developing power faults?
3) is it worth contacting Behmor support?Theyíre very helpful when dealing with roasters, but I suspect not so helpful with something I found discarded (canít blame them, to be honest)
If the ribbon cable doesnít work, Iíll put it on the pay it forward section. At the very least a spare carafe for someone!
Good luck with this one. Maybe you know someone that could check the transformer has a output voltage.
If the cable doesnít fix it, my next step is to book it in to a Repair Cafe. Volunteers who help try to fix things to prevent them going to landfill! https://transitiondarebin.org/
That's a awesome thing!
I have never heard of a repair cafe
Update: the repair cafe were helpful, but couldnít resurrect it. It has power to the main circuit board, but they couldnít tell if it had power to the control board or not. Circuit might be broken somewhere in the drip or heating mechanism. Will put it up on the pay it forward section.
